      I’ve got to give Brian some props for going 0/5. If not for my blatant homerism in picking UNC (a pick I was not confident in, but couldn’t go against), I’d be right there with you.

      1. I honestly don’t know how I was this awful. After the Wake loss (where I again picked against my beloved and heart-breaking Blue Devils and messed up) I had 0 confidence in us coming close. Our defense was awesome.

        Wake-Carolina felt like a game where UNC was given too much credit and Wake too little, and I was dead wrong there. FSU-State and OU-Kansas State just seemed like too-big lines for the favorites. And Nebraska-Michigan State… I honestly thought Michigan State was the better team. I was just way, way off. I was much better earlier in the season.

    Wow. 1/5. After 2 weeks in 1st place, I’ve been plummeting down the standings.
